Well I managed to make my way out on the ice tonight and skate with my daughter! My therapist had given me the go ahead for some leisurely skating, but had to promise no hockey. I manage to skate for about 15 minutes and then started to feel my ankle starting to get sore and decided that I better not push it! I still feel that skating at 8 weeks is a great accomplishment and a great step forward. Walking without a limp has no quite been accomplished, but it is getting easier! Baby steps eventually get us where we want to go!
